Contour Reality Capture Used in Benjamin Button

I’ve been wondering how David Fincher placed Brad Pitt’s face on different actors in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. A system called Contour Reality Capture was used to capture facial expressions, convert them into 3D and place them on the face of other actors. For more information have a look at How Contour Reality Capture Works.

Last summer’s The Incredible Hulk also used Contour Reality Capture on Ed Norton for character animation of the CGI Hulk used in the movie.
